Scramble your hamper over a few rocks to reach this secret sandy niche nestled beneath the cliffs.
If you crave a beach that only emerges from the waves in the warmer months and looks like it belongs on some far-flung tropical isle, then Pedn Vounder is a remote corner of Cornwall that’s worth a visit.
Located across the bay from the Minack Theatre, the beach (also known as Treen Beach and ‘Penny Founder’ to the locals) is a short walk along the clifftops from car parks at Treen or Porthcurno. Scramble your hamper over a few rocks to reach this secret sandy niche nestled beneath the cliffs.
We love letting the Atlantic tickle our toes, or swimming in the azure lagoon between two sandbanks. The views of the ancient fort of Treryn Dinas, sticking out into the sea, and the famous rocking Logan Rock are unique.
Local knowledge: You may encounter the odd person in the buff clambering over the rocks as this is an unofficial nudist beach!
